RIP OFF!!! This place was a first try "hostel" style for us that left me feeling very very HOSTILE. It was impulsive and we definitely regret the $70 we spent for the room. If you spend $70 I would expect a TV or something...I mean you can easily spend less at a hotel. Aren't hostels supposed to be a way to save money traveling? You check in at 5pm and are literally KICKED out at 10:45am, the owner actually knocks on the door to make sure you are awake!!! The floors were gross, he closes the place down from 11am-5pm to clean so why are they so dirty? He has a ton of crazy rules that he rambles while showing you the place, he was on auto pilot with the explanation of things. If you have a car for your trip to Savannah go to mid-town almost southside to the Days Inn and spend $49 a night with a pool, TV, etc. It also offended me that when we were first asking about the rates for multiple days he said if we stayed an extra night he would take off "5 bucks, there you can have a beer on me." Seriously? He's a little coo-coo. He doesn't make a copy of your drivers license, write down a credit card number, he just makes you print your name in a school paper notebook that surprisingly doesn't show the rate you are paying or date. Hmmm...I wonder how much he is paying in taxes. STAY AWAY, he is making a pretty penny here and good for him he fooled me once.

My friend and I recently stayed here during a weekend trip to Savannah. We had originally intended on staying in a hotel but being poor grad students, we could not afford the outrageous prices of the hotels in the downtown historic district (upwards to $200 a night!!). Of course, there are hotels that are about a twenty minute drive away that are cheaper than downtown but then stumbling home drunk wouldn't have really worked out. Similarly, it was so nice to be able to stay in the historic district for not much money, on top of that it is right next to a grocery store (if you don't want to eat out every meal) and there is free parking.
If you want a place to stay in the historic district and don't have much money, this is DEFINITELY the place to stay. I really can't recommend it enough. We paid a little extra for a private room ($70/night) but split between two people it's totally reasonable. I have stayed at hostels before and this was by far the best experience I have ever had. There is a kitchen as well and it reminded me of a cute beach house rather than a hostel. I think the experience made it a litte more fun than staying in a stuffy hotel. The guy who runs it was totally nice, helpful, and willing to work with us as we couldn't get in until very late into the night. Being tourists, we had quite a few questions about where to go (and not go) and he gave us a map was able to answer all our questions. He has obviously lived in Savannah for a while because he knew all about the city and how to get to beaches nearby, etc. Seriously, you have to stay here.

I liked this place. The guy who runs it was very very friendly and nice, made us feel very comfortable. $60 for a rather small private room was a little pricey, but it's a trade off. Spend around the same and stay at a Days Inn in crappy suburbia or one that has destroyed the neighborhood around it surrounded by parking lots, or stay in a smaller room in an awesome old house in the middle of historic Savannah and support that world. The choice was me was pretty clear.
The walls are pretty thin, and a large drunken gaggle came in the middle of the night, but I don't think this is typical... thankfully I'm a deep sleeper but kept my girlfriend up for a little...
A traditional "hostel" it is not, but on a relative budget that excludes the swanky hotels further downtown, I'd stay again my next trip!

When searching for a place to stay in Savannah, I initially went the bed and breakfast route. Each search revealed a $200+ per night cost, so I quickly turned to something more affordable: hostel.
My bf and I are familiar with hostel-style staying, as we've both done so at home and abroad. But this was unlike anything I've yet to experience.
The owner, Brian, was great. Very friendly and hospitable, he showed us our room first and let us get unloaded from the car, before checking us in. I've yet to have a hostel do that, but it did help to know we could still change our mind should the accommodations not be what we expected. The house is beautiful, complete with wood floors and old-style balconies. Brian lives on the other half of the house and we could hear the footsteps and laughter of his children occasionally, which made it feel a bit like a hybrid of a hostel and an old-school boarding house.
Our room was a private and, because we were the only two staying that night, we had the entire upstairs to ourselves, including kitchen and tv room. My only complaint was that it felt kind of grimy, like it needed a good spring cleaning-like scrub-down.
The factor that really bumps this up to a 4-star stay is the location. Located in the heart of the historic district, the Pensione is just blocks from Forsythe Park, the home of Flannery O'Conner, various pubs and coffee shops, and surrounded by the historically beautiful architecture that Savannah is so famous for.
For just $70, we got the opportunity to experience the essence of Savannah which really made our stay at the Pensione quite priceless.

The owner is very nice and shows you the place. Not a bad price. It was very hot however and that made sleeping difficult. I would suggest bringing your own linens and pillow because the beds and pillows have weird plastic on them. Bathroom is okay. Me and my friends were looking for something for our budget and this worked.

Great for what it is! Really just needed a place near downtown Savannah where 5 people could sleep for a reasonable price and the Pensione came through in the clutch. $30 per person for a private room with its own bathroom was a great deal.
No frills, which really didn't bother us because we really just needed a place to put our heads after a night at the bars.
The owner, Brian, was very friendly and I also liked that he let us take a look at our room first before he checked us in.
My only issue is I don't really like the sleep sacks he gives you. Would love to come into a room with fresh clean sheets already on the bed, but other than that no complaints. Would stay again if I was rolling through Savannah on a budget.
